"Get on the good ship power pop and rock."
―GTA V Website

Los Santos Rock Radio is a radio station in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online which plays classic rock and pop rock.

Description

The station is hosted by Kenny Loggins, who lends his singing voice to the radio sting. The station seems to be based on a cruise or a boating journey which is likely a reference to the yacht rock genre which Loggins, Michael McDonald, and Robbie Dupree are associated with.

This is one of the preferred stations of Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips, and Patrick McReary. It may also be liked by Jimmy De Santa since he has a Los Santos Rock Radio poster on his bedroom wall, but is never heard listening to the station.

In Grand Theft Auto Online, if a passenger tries to tune in to Self Radio, but the driver does not have the specified song added, it'll automatically be switched to this station.

GTA V's trackID.gxt2 database reveals more songs were planned to appear on the station but were not included in the final version. (Probably for copyright reasons)

Alongside the trackID.gtx2 database, more songs were found in a early build of GTA V on a dev PlayStation 3.[21]

Trivia

  • "Rock'n Me" by the Steve Miller Band is incorrectly listed as "Take the Money and Run", another song by the Steve Miller Band, in the game's digital manual and the original game's credits. This has been fixed in the credits for the enhanced version.
  • Occasionally, Loggins reminisces about the 1980s between songs and finishes by saying "I'm alright". This most likely was meant to cue his song, "I'm Alright", before it was removed from the station. During his monologues, Loggins occasionally mentions gophers and fighter planes, a reference to his songs "I'm Alright" and "Danger Zone" appearing in the films Caddyshack and Top Gun respectively.
  • When "I'm Free (Heaven Helps the Man)" begins to play, there is a chance that Loggins will say he is playing, "'I'm Free', by me", as he is the singer. He also references the prison escape from the music video of the song. On a similar note, whenever "What a Fool Believes" by the Doobie Brothers begins to play, Loggins also mentions the fact that he co-wrote the song.
  • On rare occasions on a Saturday, Loggins may introduce "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting" by Elton John differently.
  • "Circle in the Sand" by Belinda Carlisle was meant to appear on Non-Stop-Pop FM instead due to intros being already made for the song on that station.
  • There are a total of 69 intro lines and 25 solo lines read by Kenny Loggins. There are also 13 introduction themes to the station.[24]
  • When announcing "Heartbeat" by Don Johnson, Loggins will sometimes say "Moody guys in sports cars, neon lights and lots of cocaine, ah yes, the 80s...", a possible reference to the hit 1980s crime drama Miami Vice, which starred Don Johnson and was cited as one of the major influences on Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
  • When announcing "All the Things She Said" by Simple Minds, Loggins may mention that they were "the soundtrack for those teen coming of age films", a possible reference to the 1985 movie The Breakfast Club, which featured another song by Simple Minds, "Don't You (Forget About Me)".
